The island is just seven miles long by one mile across and is perfect to
explore on foot. There are 12 designated off-road walks, which are described in detail (with maps) in the “Walk Gigha” booklet available from Gigha Stores and Gigha Hotel. Many of the walks start and end at the centre of the island, not far from where the ferry comes in, so are ideal for foot passengers visiting for a day. The walks vary in length, from half a mile to three miles, and several can be linked to give a whole day walking.
